D for me
E lacks parallellism in comparison
"is" in D properly compares the act of "being a deterrent" of "politicial opposition" to that of "financial uncertainties"

Paul, I'm so curious.

In choice D there is no verb for the is to substitute.
The only verb in the sentence is prove, which cannot be replace with is.

Could you tell my why? Thanks :(

Here is a more simple sentence

Mark proves to be a better player than John is

In bold are just 2 different forms of verb "to be" in order to compare how good a player Mark is VS how good a player John is

(D).

Financial uncertainties has to be logically linked with resulting from the accident. So A,B,C is out.

Between D and E, D is better as E isn't parallel.

E has one more problem "deterring to the nuclear " is not a correct usage "deterrent to the nuclear industry" is the correct one.

D it is

but I dont think its ||ism being tested here, I think its comparison

we are comparing financial uncertainties vs political opposition

than is required to draw the right comparison between the two!

why A B and C are not valid ?


I mean comparing the structures of:

-from the accident at Three Mile Island

-resulting from the accident at Three Mile Island

how did you eliminate the first 3 options jut by the beggining?

Financial uncertainties from the accident is wrong. There is no financial uncertainty in any accident.
